Finding the Perfect Gown // Through the Bride’s Lens

After getting engaged, wedding planning gets crazy. Let’s not deny it. Personally, I knew how long it can take for a wedding dress to come in and get altered so that was one of the first things I did before even booking a venue!! We chose our wedding date pretty early on so I could make the date work in my work schedule easily, which helped a lot! Side note, I still can’t believe I photographed a wedding a week before mine then 3 days after returning from our honeymoon. Anyway! When it came to the dress of my dreams (and the wedding too!), I knew I wanted a summery bohemian style wedding and Blue Mae Events made my dreams come true! But picking a dress… well, that felt like more of a challenge.

When it came to choosing places to shop for a wedding dress, I honestly had no idea where to start because I only knew of a couple places. Immediately, I thought of BHLDN since I loved everything on their website and their prices were in my budget.  I truly thought it’d be a one stop shop and I’d find my gown there. If any of you are online clothing shoppers like me… you know that things we buy offline don’t always look like what we expected once we see it in person. Wedding dresses there were no different. Although there were some beautiful gowns, I just didn’t find MINE there.

After BHLDN in NYC, we decided to try RK Bridal. One benefit here was that the store had tons of styles, which turned out to be a great thing because it helped me rule out some of the styles I didn’t want my gown to be! As you probably guessed, I didn’t find my gown here either. We moved onto Barefoot Bride and then Castle Couture. Nothing I tried on really felt like the one I had dreamed about but I found myself torn between a gorgeous Hayley Paige dress and a Casablanca gown from Barefoot Bride. Luckily, I was able to try them on in the same day and back to back to make my decision, which really helped me focus on what I liked (and didn’t like) about them. In the end, I went with the Casablanca gown from Barefoot Bride!!!

Honestly, choosing my gown taught me a few things. The first… to be open minded and try on everything at least once (okay, not every dress, but you get the idea)… You’d be surprised what you like and everything is customizable! This was important when I did finally find my gown because it turned out to be a smidge puffier than I wanted but I had some layers removed! Additionally, this helps you realize what will or won’t work for your particular day. One dress I tried on brought both my mother and mother-in-law to tears, but it just wouldn’t have been practical for our bohemian inspired summer wedding. Maybe a ballroom or a winter wedding! The other major thing I want to pass onto brides is to think about your dress. Don’t feel like you have to rush into buying something. Try it on, sleep on it and go back to get the one you love. It’ll be better that way then to buy something and waste the money on a gown you’ll never wind up wearing – or worse, wear all day and be miserable in! I’ve known girls who’ve made the wrong dress choice and boy, was there a headache after that purchase was over!!

When all was said and done, we had a great time looking for my gown. I’m so happy I was able to bring along my friends and family and they helped me through this process. Comment below with which gown you loved the most from all the ones I tried on!! I can’t believe how many I actually put on now that I look back at them… And tell me all about YOUR gown buying experiences!!!

The English Manor // Married //Alicia & Michael

September has already been filled with such beautiful weddings - I feel so lucky every single day that this is my job! Alicia and Michael met while attending Rowan University and reconnected a few years later over a craft beer at Kane Brewery. Their relationship continued to grow through trivia nights, glasses of wine, and before they knew it, they began to plan their stunning fall wedding at the English Manor!

Alicia told me that when they walked into the English Manor, they just KNEW it was the spot they had to have their wedding day. Their elegant day was filled with purple and navy blue details, creating a warm and intimate feel to their celebration. And their wedding bouquets? Lavender roses and white dahlias - so, so perfect! I absolutely love that they had a craft beer station with a sign telling their guests “It all started with a beer” to celebrate their first date and start to their relationship! Their day was absolutely wonderful from start to finish and when I asked Alicia why that was or what she might tell other brides, she told me “…to not sweat the small stuff. Worrying about every little detail can make the process too overwhelming” and I totally agree!

My favorite part of their day was simply being a part of it! I use to work with Alicia and getting to photograph a friend of mine’s wedding was amazing! A bonus was they were married in the church that I grew up going to for my school years- I actually use to be an altar girl at the church so it was surreal to be photographing a wedding many years later. Talk about a full circle moment! The day was just wonderful because neither Alicia or Mike were stressed or nervous, they were both just excited to get married! Being able to capture a couple so in love and happy about their wedding day makes my job so easy!! Enjoy some of my favorites from their September wedding!

The Smithville Inn // Kelly & Kyle // Married

Kelly and Kyle’s love story began in June of 2012 and they just celebrated becoming husband and wife last weekend!! These two met at Hooks Bar in Seaside Heights during a friend’s birthday party where Kelly made Kyle dance with her and the rest was history! Their first official date started with tacos and ended with a sunset cruise, which is so romantic, so it was no surprise when they wound up getting engaged!! These two have celebrated many adventures together in including trapeze lessons, beer tastings on the Clipper in NYC, a Bruce Springsteen concert at Met Life Stadium… the list goes on and on, but their adventures are always together!

They settled on a September wedding date for their intimate, family-filled wedding day at the Smithville Inn! It was stunning. Kelly told me she loved their venue because of how homey and cozy the fireplaces made it feel - plus those gorgeous windows! Smithville is a beautiful little town and even managed to fulfill one of Kelly’s childhood dreams of having a carousel at her wedding. I mean, seriously?! How much fun is that?! Kelly and Kyle decided on a purple and green color scheme for their wedding, aiming to keep rustic touches throughout the day to compliment their romantic venue. I love that her bridesmaids gowns and florals were all a little different arrangements of lavender, eucalyptus and seasonal wildflowers. (just wait until you see the pictures below!). It was seriously my favorite part of their wedding day at Smithville Inn! And we have to talk about Kelly’s wedding dress! Kelly worked with Anomalie to help her design and create her own vision for her wedding dress resulting in a one of a kind full lace custom gown and vial.

When I asked Kelly what she would tell other engaged couples, she told me: “One piece of advice we can give other couples is that there is no rush to plan everything the second you are engaged. Take time to enjoy your engagement period. Also, Pinterest is your best friend for inspiration but remember you can not always recreate everything that you see so don't be afraid to put your own personal style on it. Something will go wrong on your wedding day but you have to just roll with it because no one else will notice except you. The day isn't about the cake or the dress; it is about the love you have for each other and celebrating that love for everyone to see.

Enjoy the sneak peek from this stunning, rustic wedding day at Smithville Inn. Kelly and Kyle, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

Tatum Park // Married // Cara & Mike

September weddings have begun in full force and I couldn't be more glad!! I started my fall wedding season with Cara and Mike at Tatum Park and their gorgeous lavender and sage filled wedding day. 

Cara and Mike met the summer of 2011 at a mutual friend’s party in NJ and spent that summer having fun and getting to know each other. Much of what they did was outdoors, which lead to them planning a cross country road trip to California to celebrate their love for adventure! The two ventured out west to explore the country and all it had to offer. Their two-week adventure turned into a 6 year stay in southern California where they currently still live and work!! While on their trip, Mike proposed at Anza Borega Desert State Park (think a mini Grand Canyon!) while they were hiking. The two missed part of the canyon and at another hiker's suggestion, they turned around. When they got to this neat part of the canyon, Mike proposed and obviously Cara said of course! 

I loved how much their wedding day truly reflected who they are as a couple, full of fun details - like a wall of homemade beer, signature drinks, cornhole games, and personalized cups for their drinks! My favorite part of their incredible sage and lavender filled wedding day had to be their sunset portraits. The light was just perfect and you could see how much they loved each other as Mike twirled Cara around, threw seeds for her to dance in and as they cheered each other walking back to the reception tent together. Those are the moments I LIVE for! Thank you for letting me be a part of your incredible day, Mike and Cara!!

Liberty House // Married // Jen & Tom

I'm so excited to be throwing it back on today's blog to one of my favorite September 2017 weddings at the Liberty House! Meet Jen and Tom, who had an incredible day celebrating their marriage in an intimate ceremony at this gorgeous NJ venue that overlooks NYC. One of the things I loved is that these two had an afternoon wedding - which was really cool! It's definitely crazy to be done with a wedding day by 4pm! Jen and Tom were seriously surrounded by some of the best people on their day and it was such a joy to capture their memories.

This September wedding was full of elegant pink, blue and green touches - and I especially loved the greenery all around their ceremony space. Jen's bouquet was absolutely stunning - take a look at that ribbon and Tom's amazing Dazi floral tie!!! Definitely a favorite here! And let's talk about those wedding favors... mini donuts and coffee shots! Yes, you read that right!! I definitely snatched up a couple of those for my ride home and they were delicious ; )

My favorite part of their wedding day was when they cut their wedding cake. The entire room was singing and cheering around them as the newlyweds cut their gorgeous cake! For it being the middle of the afternoon, this group was ready to party!

Mansion at Timberpoint // Married // Liz & Fred

I can't believe August is almost over! Since the wedding, things have really flown by for us!! I can't believe I was able to be a part of Liz and Fred's wedding just three days after I got back from my own honeymoon! I love being a wedding photographer and loved it before I got married, but there's something extra special about it now that I'm married, too! 

Liz and Fred met their sophomore year at SUNY New Paltz during the Yankee playoffs - Fred couldn't believe how much of a true Yankees fan Liz was (and still is!) when they first met! As Liz said, after he bought her a pitcher of Bud Light to watch the playoffs that night... the rest was history! Both teachers, they have a passion for working with children, spending their free time on the beach and at breweries. 9 years later, in a day filled to the brim with family and the sweetest love you can imagine, they've tied the knot!! 

They planned a beautiful navy, white and peach summer wedding throughout their engagement. Liz actually did much of the decor herself, which is incredible! One of the most beautiful parts about their day is that despite having lost both of their grandfathers recently, they found sweet ways to incorporate their memory into the wedding. In fact, while Liz’s grandfather was in the hospital a couple years ago Liz became friendly with one of his nurses who was also engaged and they frequently talked about planning their weddings. Kristen, the nurse, mentioned how much she loved her photographer and that is how Liz found me to be her photographer. I literally almost cried when she first told me this story on our initial phone call and felt so blessed when she reached out to me. I was able to meet Liz's grandmother during the wedding which made everything more bittersweet, without a doubt. 

When I asked Liz and Fred if they had any advice for other brides and grooms planning their own weddings, Liz told me "This will pass. Don't let your thoughts become negative because the only thing that matters is that you are marrying the love of your life and it will be amazing. Anxiety needs something to attach to so a wedding is the perfect culprit. Remember that every thought in your head is not a fact. Take some me time and focus on self-care so you can be the best version of yourself for your wedding day!" What amazing advice and as a recent bride myself, I totally agree!! 

My favorite (and most memorable part) of this gorgeous wedding was when Liz looked over her shoulder at her grandma and smiled and they both started to tear up. Of course I started crying too! I am crying writing this right now -- but happy tears of course!!  It was such an emotional day for everyone... especially Liz & Fred who were filled with happy tears all day long!

The Royal Manor // Married // Milena & Dalwin

Fabulous summer fun. When I asked Milena to describe her and Dalwin's wedding day, that's what she told me. And boy, was she right! What a great way to spend a day - celebrating these two at their gorgeous summer wedding at the Royal Manor. 

Milena and Dalwin have been together for 5 years. And after a sweet proposal while they were vacationing in Charleston, they began to plan their perfect day. I love that they incorporated various parts of their heritages - Polish and Dominican-American - into their wedding day so it was a true celebration and fusion of their lives. The two were so happy to be able to have all of their friends and family together in one place to celebrate! (Who isn't?!). 

My favorite part of Milena and Dalwin's wedding day was their first look. I think it was everyone's favorite part, ha! They were so excited to see each other Milena literally opened her arms and jumped up and down in excitement. Dalwin cried as Milena wiped away his tears because he was so happy to see his bride to be! I feel so lucky that my job is all about capturing these special moments!

Sandy Hook // Engaged // Lindsay & Kyle

Lindsay and Kyle recently celebrated their engagement and upcoming 2019 wedding with me by having their engagement session at Sandy Hook Beach! These two have been together for 3 1/2 years after meeting on match.com! As they told me, they went on their first date at Pazzo and sat talking until they got kicked out at closing time... and the rest is history! 

Kyle proposed to Lindsay in April in their home.  Lindsay was cleaning the kitchen because they were having friends over that evening and Kyle called her into the dining room and had a photo album on the table filled with notes that we have left to each other throughout our years dating. When Lindsay got to the last page, it had a list of important dates and the last date read "4/21/18 the day she said yes" and when Lindsay looked over, Kyle was down on one knee asking her to marry him! How sweet is that?! 

Lindsay and Kyle, I can't wait until your 2019 wedding at the gorgeous Battleground Country Club! I am so excited to show off your engagement session!!
